Kristoff Fourth At Vattenfall Cyclassics

15. agosto 2010

Hamburg, Germany

Alexander Kristoff scored his sixth top 10 finish since recovering from a horrific crash – and his 10th of the season overall – with fourth place Sunday at the Vattenfall Cyclassics.

Entire Team Rode Well

On rain-soaked streets in Hamburg, Kristoff was in good position in the sprint, won by Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Transitions). The Norwegian is back on form after crashing out of the Tour de Beauce in June. "I think Alexander is always the fastest one in the last 100 meters," BMC Racing Team Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said. "He's always coming from far away in the last 200 meters, so he has a big acceleration at the end that is impressive. I was also happy that all of our protected guys were there with the leaders the last time up the Waseberg. They did a really good job."
